Thousands attend Remembrance Day ceremony in Truro

TRURO - An estimated 3,500 people gathered at the Cenotaph in Truro on Sunday morning to honour those who served for our country.

Remembrance Day was honoured by young and old as they paid their respects and remembered those who served, are serving or were lost in various battles. Veterans were deeply touched by the show of respect, especially when individuals made their way to the vets to offer a thank you card or a sign of thanksgiving.

    i found it very disrespectfull for a reporter to be talking to the veterans while the laying of the wreaths was taking place. if you wanted to talk to the veterans you should have waited until after the ceremony was over.

    This was one of the nicest services I have attended in Truro. Very nice to see such a large crowd supporting our veterans. Sad to see so few of them left. Let us remember those younger veterans as well.

    What I would like to know that when atttending the rememberance day cermony, is why people don't leave their dogs at home. This year, there were at least 15 dogs in attendance, Do these people take their dogs to church, a funeral, or wedding and certainly not shopping. Why then do they see fit to take them to a sacred cermony in honor of those brave people, who paid the supreme sacrifice to protect us. Next year please just leave your dogs at home.
